    Senior Management tells you one thing then goes behind your back and does another without any warning.

    I worked at Behringer Harvard Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's hard to consider the positives when the negatives/cons are so glaringly obvious and fundamental. Fix the negatives and then people can begin to see the positives more clearly.

    Cons

    Older (age) employees are jealous and will try and backstab younger employees who are in a more senior role because of jealousy. They feel threatened and think they deserve a more senior job because they're "older."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell someone one thing and do the opposite without warning. Senior management needs to lead by example and not focus only on themselves. Also, if you tell someone they have the authority that comes with a job then give it to the person and not second guess the person. You (senior management) hired the person for a reason so put your trust and faith in them. That is called leading by example, keeping employee morale high by believing in them, employee retention, and ultimately organic growth and company success. Also, management needs to not throw truly great people under the bus so quickly and allow the dysfunctional ones survive.

    Pros

    Great benefits and people
    Good work location

    Cons

    compensation below industry average, no 401k matching and raises have not been given in 3 years. Do not mentor employees for job growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk - promote from within. Clean house and layoff employees that do not have the correct skill set for their positions. Do not hire because it was someone you worked with before but on need.

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere
    Meet a lot of people
    Good industry to be in
    If you like an occasional business travel this will be a good place for you

    Cons

    It really depends which part of BH you will fall into. The company structure is pretty complex with the different funds the have and management style from department to department will vary.

    Bad communication between departments
    A lot of confusion in some departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide managing skills to some of the employees who do not posses people skills, but are in supervisory position.
